Kelly Church is a member of the Gun Lake Band Potawatomi, Grand Traverse Band Ottawa & Chippewa Native American tribes, living in Michigan.
Kelly combines the centuries-old tradition of tree harvesting and processing ash trees, creating ribbons of ash that she then weaves into stunningly original baskets. Tied to her artistry is a deep commitment to keeping this tradition not just alive but vital.
Church’s artistic, activist, mentorship, and tradition bearer journey to advocate for the survival of Native traditions has involved many national and international art programs, exhibitions, and work with government agencies such as Tribal and U.S. Forest services.
